Israeli salad

1. Combine ingredients in a bowl. Let sit and reserve for later.


1. Using a box grater, grate the potatoes and onion into a strainer.

2. Squeeze or press out as much of the liquid as possible.

3. Transfer the potato-onion mixture to a clean large bowl. Add egg yolks, scallions, matzo meal, butter, salt, pepper, and baking powder into bowl and mix well.

4. In a separate medium size bowl, beat the egg whites for approximately 3 minutes with an electric mixer until they hold stiff, shiny peaks.

5. Fold the egg whites into the potato mixture.

6. Heat a thin layer of oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Working in batches, scoop 1/4 cup of the potato mixture into the pan for each pancake. Flatten gently with a spatula. Fry until the pancakes are crisp and golden brown, about 4 minutes per side.


1. Lightly soft scramble eggs in a deep rimmed wok, about 3 minutes.


1. Plate latkes with eggs, Israeli salad, smoked-salmon and toasted challah. Serve latkes with sour cream and apple sauce.
